Wow, that’s gorgeous, Luca.  It has a wonderful artistic quality.  Thank you for sharing, and we’re delighted to hear you’re making good use of your astro-gear!

Dear All,

Over the Summer I collected 19 hours of data on Pickering's Triangle using the AP1100GTO with a 10in Newt. Today my image was selected as image of the day on Astrobin! 

This Summer I built an observatory in my backyard and have now a Mach1GTO (soon to be replaced by a Mach2) and an AP1100 on two piers. Not having to set up every night I image has been such a huge step un in quality of data and life! 

The high resolution image with full acquisition details is on astrobin:

Happy belated Thanksgiving!
